News__ OBESITY + SPEED
New York-based clothing line, Obesity and Speed, is not named after the struggle between body image and fashion. The name was ripped from a punk song founders Lyz Olko and Josh Conner used to listen to in high school. Starting up a few years back in a dingy New York basement, Olko and Conner decided to turn their sleepless nights into something tangible. Since then, Obesity and Speed's daringly sloppy collection (always armed with slices and shapes) has become a cult favorite. Obesity and Speed have collaborated with Earnest Sewn, Oak, Nylon, and last year, Urban Outfitters to form a new women's collection that played with dark graphics and random cuts. We're all over this line. All over it.
